Fisher Associates’ testing and commissioning engineers have a broad understanding of the overall substation conceptional to commissioning process and are capable of commissioning both greenfield projects and challenging retrofits into existing substations. Their Our understanding of transmission, distribution, and generation systems allows them us to create and implement testing plans that meet rigorous commissioning timelines and/or NERC PRC-005-6 regulatory requirements.

Our engineers review design drawings, develop and execute test plans, provide technical direction to the electrical construction contractor or in-house wiremen, and perform final in-service engineering checks while bringing the MV/HV/EHV substation equipment online for the initial time.

Our testing and commissioning services include:

  • Acceptance and maintenance testing
  • NERC-PRC-005-6 testing
  • Troubleshooting, analysis and evaluation of in-service equipment
  • Outage and energization planning
